Will the Upcoming US Presidential Election Significantly Affect Foreign Policy? Stephen Walt Dishes on GZERO World

The Impact of the US Election on Global Relations

In a recent interview with Ian Bremmer on GZERO World, Harvard Kennedy School’s Stephen Walt discussed the role of foreign policy in the upcoming US presidential election. According to Walt, foreign policy will play a more significant role in the election due to the lack of major successes for Biden and the economy not favoring him as much as expected.

Walt believes that while there may be some differences between a second Biden or Trump term in terms of foreign policy, these differences may not be as significant as many believe. He notes that on important issues such as China policy, there isn’t a huge gap between the two candidates. Biden’s approach has built on Trump’s policies, especially focusing on high-tech issues.

Despite these similarities, Walt does highlight potential areas where there may be significant differences between Trump and Biden in foreign policy. For example, he suggests that Trump may take a less supportive stance towards Europe and NATO due to his nationalist and unilateralist tendencies.

Overall, Walt’s analysis suggests that while there are differences between Trump and Biden in foreign policy, these differences may not lead to drastically different outcomes in certain areas.
